This group have come a long way from their roots-reggae beginnings. On their 10th album, elements of ska and funk complement electronic accents, with tight musicianship and strong vocals throughout.
Thoughtful, emotive lyrics like "Bright eyes could die or catch fire/There's a disguise in each one/So what fight do you choose?" prove these musicians have just as much political fire as in the past; it's just in a slicker package this time. The band have built a reputation on the strength of their live performances, so their upcoming Madison appearance promises to deliver.
